May 8-12 ~ New Sony Mavica CD1000 is here!

Dsc00006.jpg (47914 bytes)Saturday, 05-12-2001 ~ Overcast with light drizzle today. We received our new Sony Mavica CD1000 yesterday. Unfortunately the weather was a little hazy so our first set of pics with her aren't as good as I would have hoped.

I drove up to the Port Orford Heads State Park and shot this first set of images from the Nellie's Cove trail. The photo above is a view looking east at Battle Rock Beach with the Sea Crest Hotel above and the Port Jetty below. The first picture below shows Orford Cove with the China Mountain Range behind. I moved up the trail some and shot the middle image of the Cove and Battle Rock Beach. The last image is a north to south view of Hell's Gate (click here to see views of Hell's Gate from the Port).

The weather around the west side of the Headland was foggy so I worked my way back to the car and drove to Battle Rock Park and shot this next set of images. First is look back at our Agate Realty office. The new fascia boards and soffits are in and our parking lot is roughed-in and ready for gravel. I turned towards Battle Rock Beach and took the next two pictures below. The last image shows Gold Run Creek snaking into the ocean.

The first photo below is a zoomed view from the scenes above. I then walked down to the beach and took the last two pics. The first has Cabbage Rock and the large stack seen in the first image, the second shows a hazy Humbug Mountain behind Monkey Rock.

I walked past the large stack seen in the photos above and shot this last image looking south towards Hubbards Creek Beach and Humbug Mountain with Monkey Rock on the right. The last two images were taken on the Elk River last Thursday with our Kodak DC210 Zoom digital camera.

Mvc-156x 2.jpg (70305 bytes)Wednesday, 05-02-2001 ~ Warm and sunny this morning. Yesterday was a busy day at Battle Rock Park. The sun and large waves brought out over a dozen surfers that were working the curls next to Battle Rock. Some of these guys and gals were quite good. I didn't have Dan Hill's Sony Mavica, so unfortunately no pics. Mvc-051x 2.jpg (65880 bytes)Today's excellent weather should bring out even more! The surfing photo on the left was posted before but figured it was good enough for a second showing. The image of Battle Rock Beach on the right shows a large wave crashing against Monkey Rock.

Mvc-383x.jpg (55268 bytes)More news ~ We visited Paradise Point the other night and watched several groups of Grey Whales migrating up the coastline. The photos below were shot from the Paradise Point parking area. The first two images are views to the north towards Cape Blanco. The last pictures is a view looking south towards Agate Beach and the Port Orford Headland. On the left is a zoomed view of Agate Beach with some homes at 'Little America' above.

I went fishing at the south side of Hubbards Creek Beach a few weeks back and caught this nice collection of Red Tailed Perch (pic on left). Click here to see a past pics feature from this beautiful beach. The first two images below are town shots looking north down Highway 101. I took these images next to Norma's vacation rental listing across the street from the newly remodeled Savoy Theater. The last pic shows the commercially zoned, oversized corner lot home/vacation rental with the Savoy Theater on the right.
